2019, After the Fall of New York (Italian: 2019 - Dopo la caduta di New York) is a 1983 Italian science fiction film directed by Sergio Martino in both English and Italian. It is of the post-apocalyptic Italian genre similar to the films 1990 The Bronx Warriors and Endgame. It is set in 2019, after a nuclear apocalypse, and stars a mercenary out to rescue the last fertile woman on Earth. The film starred Michael Sopkiw and Anna Kanakis, and B-movie regular George Eastman.

The film was influenced by John Carpenter's Escape from New York.[1]


In 2019 the world has been devastated by nuclear war. The resulting radiation prevents humans from procreating. A group of survivors are sent in to New York, which is now under control by a band of savages conducting cruel human experiments on survivors, to rescue a woman who has mysteriously remained fertile.
